Does the Media Room in Your New Jersey Home Get Lots of Light?

Don't Worry - There's a Screen for That!

Does the Media Room in Your New Jersey Home Get Lots of Light?

When you are looking to install or upgrade a media room screen in your Warren, NJ home, your tendency is likely to “go big.” While flat-panel TVs have gotten ever-larger, at a point beyond 90 inches or so, a projector and screen will provide the largest and most cost-effective image.

Some people may not initially want a projector because of aesthetics or perceived complexity. The reality is that a projector setup done correctly is just as easy to use and looks as great as any other display. A more significant reason someone might not want a projector is because of windows in the room that let in a large amount of light. If your media room serves a purpose beyond films in the dark, you might desire more light in the room, especially on a Sunday afternoon while watching a Giants football game.

Does that mean a projector is out of the question? Far from it. First, you can control light with smart, automated features like motorized shades. But that doesn't mean you need a fully darkened room to watch football either. The latest projectors from top brands like Sony, coupled with ambient light-absorbing screens, make it easy for your media room not to have to be a cave.

Read on to learn more about one such versatile screen, the Black Diamond from Screen Innovations.

Wondering How to Choose Media Room Seating?

It’s All About Comfort and Lifestyle

Wondering How to Choose Media Room Seating?

On these pages, we’ve discussed home theaters versus media rooms, the merits of flat panel displays versus projectors, and options for sound systems. It’s easy to get caught up in choosing the right audio and video equipment for your entertainment space. One area that may not get as much attention is seating.

The choice of seating in your space is as important as any other decision, perhaps even more so. Think about it. If you went to the local cineplex and found the seat uncomfortable for any reason – not enough legroom, padding, support, etc. – there's a good chance you remember that experience more than the movie itself. If you're sitting for hours watching a film or football in your home, comfort is paramount.

Another aspect to consider when selecting seating is how the room is laid out and how furniture will fit inside. Do you enjoy high-backed, reclining, or theater-style seating? Or do you prefer casual sofa-oriented seating? Or maybe a mix?

Choices abound for home theater and media room seating for your New Vernon, NJ home. Read on to see how Bravo AV makes it easy to evaluate the options and help you make the right decision.

TV or Projector? What to Know About Media Room Screens

Choosing a New Media Room Screen Doesn’t Need to be Difficult

TV or Projector? What to Know About Media Room Screens

The home theater versus media room “debate” may be more shades of gray versus black and white, just as the debate regarding a flat-panel TV or a projector has no clear-cut answer. Screen, flat-panel, and projector technology have advanced to a state where either can be an excellent option with a wide variety of media.

Just a few years ago, that might not have been the case. Projectors were best for huge cinematic screens and darkened rooms, and TVs were best for smaller rooms that had windows. We might exaggerate a little here because you can mitigate light with automated window treatments, but in general, these axioms held true. Now there are a variety of projectors that look great with all types of video content, and the same goes for flat panels.

So how do you choose between a TV and a projector for your Chester, NJ media room screen? There’s no absolute right answer, but we can get you on the path to the choice that’s right for you.

Media Room Design: Home Theaters vs. Media Rooms

What’s The Difference? What Are The Challenges? We Explain Below.

Media Room Design: Home Theaters vs. Media Rooms

We love home theaters. They can bring the cinematic experience home without the crowds, high ticket prices, and questionable concessions. The parking is easier at home too. Many people ask us about building a home theater, and others ask us about installing media rooms. In some cases, people that ask about home theaters really want a media room, and the opposite also happens.

Is there a difference between a home theater and a media room? Yes. Home theaters tend to be purpose built highly engineered rooms. Media room tend to be multipurpose rooms.  Both can deliver excellent performance.  The important point is that that end product fits your lifestyle and entertainment preferences.
